Robert Treat Academy's High School Placement Office offers an invaluable service to students in both seventh and eighth grade. It integrates a two-year, high school preparation period into the school week, where students prepare for high school entrance exams, practice interview skills for school interviews and Open Houses, and create individualized student profiles for each high school to review.
In addition to working extensively with the students, the HSP Team works one-on-one with the parents of each eighth grader, in order to help the family apply to the appropriate day, private, Parochial, Catholic or public school for each individual student. Informational sessions are held for the parents, applications are completed, and financial aid workshops are held at RTA. Both eighth grade students and their parents participate in Robert Treat Academy's Annual Interview Day, where we host admissions directors from over forty high schools at the Academy and allows for one-on-one interviews for both the student and parent.
The High School Placement staff also maintains relationships with Heads of School and Directors of Admission at elite boarding schools scattered throughout the country, as well as prestigious private day schools in New Jersey.
Our Alumni Coordinator maintains contact with RTA graduates; visiting each student at least once a year at their high schoo and keeping in touch with students' guidance counselors in order to assess how the student is progressing.
The High School Placement Office at Robert Treat works hard to ensure that after leaving the Academy, students go on to become some of the best and brightest high school students in the country.
